Rapper Snoop Dogg has unleashed a clever way to outrun the paparazzi - he ducks into dodgy neighbourhoods.
The Long Beach, California native is often hounded by photographers on the hunt for a picture, and he's initiated his own scare tactics to avoid unflattering photos.
And even if some snappers still dare to follow him, the rapper's burly bodyguards have no problem dealing with them.
He says, "I go to the areas where the paparazzi are kind of scared to go in. I've got some security guards (who are) kind of big so those little cameras - they just scoop them up with one hand."
